No Satisfaction: Woman Are Less Likely to Orgasm During Casual Sex

The hookups may be exciting, but they're ultimately anti-climactic for many women

Though women are nearly as likely as men to engage in casual sex, they are less likely to receive the same, ahem, benefits as their partners during those casual hookups. According to research presented at the International Academy of Sex Research’s annual meeting, women are more likely to orgasm from intercourse while in a serious relationship than during a hookup.

“The notion of sexual liberation, where men and women both had equal access to casual sex, assumed a comparable likelihood of that sex being pleasurable,” Kim Wallen, a professor of neuroendocrinology at Emory University told the New York Times.  “But that part of the playing field isn’t level.”

The study of 600 college students found that women were half as likely to orgasm from oral sex or intercourse during a casual hookup than when they were in a serious relationship. This backs earlier research by New York University sociologist Paula England, which showed that just 40% of the 24,000 college aged women she studied over five years at 21 colleges reached orgasm during a hookup while 80% of men did. Nearly 75% of women who were in a relationship, on the other hand, had an orgasm during sex.

Women, researchers say, likely do not feel comfortable telling their hook-ups what they want and need during sex while their male partners are admittedly less focused on pleasing a casual sex partner.

“I’m not going to try as hard as when I’m with someone I really care about,” Duvan Giraldo, 26, told the Times. Though, he said pleasing his partner is “always my mission.”

Casey Romaine, 22, told the Times, hook-ups are often just about sharing an intimate moment, rather than having a particularly good sexual experience.

“I think a lot of the time it almost is weirdly irrelevant whether or not the sex is actually good,” she said.

One-night stands were a dumb idea 40 or 50 years ago, and they're still a dumb idea now.  Absolutely NO good reason for any intelligent woman to hook up and plenty of reasons not to bother.  No incentive for him to be 1) interesting, 2) polite, 3) bathe and dress properly for you, 4) care whether or not you get much out of it or 5) be discreet.  You, meanwhile, risk your health for a nobody who won't make any effort for you, let alone get to know you and care how it turns out for you.  Don't even bother.  Wise up, young people:  this one was answered ages ago, and the answer hasn't changed just because you can text a booty call now.

From this report, it seems that this research is about *college-aged* men and women, many of whom barely know how their or their partners' junk works yet--especially those who are hooking up, partly to understand just that. The men in who are in relationships have had time to figure out where their partners' buttons are --assuming they care, which probably has something to do with relationship status. Maybe relationship status is more about skill level on both sides. To say it's all about womens' "comfort" asking for what they want assumes that they know, and also assumes that the men they're hooking up with know what to pay attention to. It's a good thing the author asked Duvan Giraldo, 26, what he thinks, so we know how all men are.  I hope the research isn't as sloppy as this article reporting it.

Giving a girl a G spot orgasm can be a complex and tricky task. But if you know the secrets to building sexual tension, how to perform amazing foreplay, and have an intimate knowledge of the female sexual anatomy and know her to use her mind to unlock her inner sexuality, then you'll find it incredibly easy to give her powerful, lasting G Spot orgasms every single night.

Natural penis enlargement can be achieved by hand exercise. This exercise works under principle of hold and stretch. Penis enlargement exercises push the blood in the penis tissues making it erect and longer permanently. These exercises widen the penis chambers which allow more blood circulation in your organ. Hence the more blood enters the organ the more rocking hard and wider it becomes. Penis Enlargement gives your partner the optimum sexual satisfaction and making your libido higher. You can get sex stimulation very quickly and can enjoy longer time intercourse.

What about conducting this study with women over 40 years of age? It seems that young girls are just preocupied with body imagine an not really into getting to know their own bodies.. just saying.. Maybe, this isn't true in this generation...

At the rates I charge the dames to bed me I believe they strive arduously to obtain the maximum pleasure possible so as to get their money's worth.


No refunds and no guarantee of satisfaction but my Adonis-like body and massive masculinity seems to be ample provocation for waves of orgasmic pleasure to course through those lucky gal's quivering bodies.

I am so sick of the media telling me I need to f--- like a man and drink like a man and act like a man. I have never bought into Madonna's nonsense. Not since I was in my early 20s anyway. 


I had a coworker who was a smart girl, premed, tell me about how depressed she felt after a one night stand. She looked at me and said "Maybe it's not true what they've been telling us on TV?" I was like "Of course it isn't!" 


And if someone that smart was buying into the media's b s about how the modern woman must act and feel, think of all the other women who aren't as smart, and aren't able to question the messages marketing companies constantly send us. They feel confused when they don't feel satisfied during casual sex, and wonder why they feel depressed afterwards.  


Well at least they did this study. I think it will help a lot of women to stop feeling ashamed that they aren't enjoying the bag of goods the media has been selling us.

I was under the impression that it took a woman longer to reach orgasm than men . In a hookup , a man will come quicker ; in a relationship you can take your time .

I suggest that as a general yardstick regarding casual sex, you should not engage in it unless you feel comfortable enough with the other person to let them know what you do and don't like. In addition, you should feel that it is more likely than not that the other person is going to listen to you and consider your needs.

Not to mention the extreme performance pressure often combined with unrealistic expectations that comes from participating with a partner you know little or nothing about.

Basically it's all on the line and often your both running blind.

Sometimes it works, but sometimes not so much.

@Swingdiva  why is it wrong for just "intelligent women" to have one night stands? females have stronger libidos than males, so why do we have to suppress our urges and not men?  your point is silly, and makes you sound prude.  play safe, wrap it up, get tested, and have fun.  if we don't orgasm, whatever.  we can get the job done ourselves, try again, or move on to the next one.

@GaryRMcCray There's no pressure for the woman.  If she's game, she's good.  Men on the other hand, are expected to do everything, to last long but stay good to go; basically the onus is on the guy to make sure fun is had.
